Suicidal Man Brings Out The Best In Everyone

A 26-year-old man, recently released from psychiatric treatment at Bellevue after a nervous breakdown brought on in part by the fear that he would be evicted from his rent-controlled apartment, tried to hang himself and then slashed his throat before jumping out of his window and falling nine stories, only to land on a pile of the garbage the city has been unable to pick up because of the snow. Vangelis (Angelo) Kapatos survived, and is in critical condition. (The News has a heartbreaking picture of Kapatos as a baby-faced high school grad.) Naturally, readers are nothing but sympathetic.

Dear god, you have a Google Alert set up for "suicide," don't you?

Actually he's got a custom one for anything that uses "doosh" more than once.

God filters out people who choose to live in cities without alleys.

Stop living in cities without alleys, then. Doesn't anyone read the old testament? It's all in there.

I'd almost say those Daily News commentors are beneath contempt. But then, where would the low bar lay for the Post's?

Hope Mr. Kapatos gets some help, and his critics get some ass cancer.

Ass cancer is not a laughing matter, son.

No it isn't. My best friend just died of it.
And my brother was a suicide. I have very strong opinions on both.

I just read the article. So sad.

Daily News readers would probably befit from a nervous breakdown.
